We provide support to ensure the effective operation of the following courts and tribunals:

  • Magistrate's Court
  • Youth Court
  • Petty Debts Court
  • Jersey Employment Tribunal
  • Social Security Appeal Tribunal

Each week, the Royal Court sits on Friday to hear general matters. The name of this court, the Samedi Court, and the name of this department, the Judicial Greffe, reflect the historic roots of Jersey law in Norman French law.
